'60 Minutes' Correspondent Mike Wallace Dies in New Canaan

NEW CANAAN, Conn. – Mike Wallace, a longtime correspondent for the CBS news program “60 Minutes,” died early Saturday night at the Waveny Care Center in New Canaan, according to CBS News . He was 93 years old.

Wallace was considered a pioneer in television news and was known for his aggressive reporting over the years. Wallace and Harry Reasoner introduced America to “60 Minutes” in 1968. It eventually rose to become a staple of CBS’ Sunday evening programming, featuring interviews between Wallace and some of the world’s notable political and social figures.

Wallace reportedly had lived in New Canaan at Waveny Care for several years, though he also owned an apartment in New York City.

CBS will air a special edition of '60 Minutes' saluting Wallace’s life and work next Sunday, the network said.
